Do you believe our "window" to win the Cup is still open?

Im not saying that the Oilers all of a sudden will be great. If a team has low draft picks they have to make the most of it. Detroit has been successful because they have done great at this aspect. To a lesser degree I have to give Vancouver some props as well. However other than the likes of Erhoff, Edler, Burrows the Canucks havent had enough diamonds in recent memory.
Detroit's drafting hasn't produced anything great since the late 90's when they drafted Datsyuk and Zetterberg late in the draft. I think it's time to stop talking about how great the Red Wings are at drafting.
